(3.5 out of 5). Since I consider myself a fan of Mexican spirits (especially mezcal), I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this is the only sotol I've ever tried. For that reason, I won't be able to compare it to how sotol is or "should" be. However, it has a strong nose of butterscotch as well as an earthiness that I might compare to a lowland añejo tequila. The taste is really quite subtle (it's triple distilled) but complex enough to be interesting. My only major complaint is the alcohol content- 38%. This could be much more interesting at 40% or higher. Costs $30 or so, which is very reasonable.

Agree with Chris on this one - nice light entry level Sotol. It does lack a bit in character, but worth a try if you're new to Sotols

Interesting, very smooth but slightly lacking in character compared to some we have had. More of a Sotol lite - which is fine if you are looking for a lighter form of a product I guess to start out with...If I were to use a scotch analogy this would be a Highland and Don Cuco would be a full on Islay.
